I Dreamed of Africa (2000)

Summercamp! (2007)

"Summercamp! maintains a gentle, lackadaisical tone that eloquently captures the triumphs and traumas of this ageless ritual." ‐ Seattle Times

Runaway Jury (2003)

"The movie is skillfully paced by rising director Gary Fleder and has all the usual Grisham touches: big issues, broad characterizations, tense showdowns and a swelling bounty of twists and clues." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Wonderland (2003)

"The film is so truncated, so obsessed with style and composed of so many self-contained episodes that it fails to say anything new." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Good Boy! (2003)

Matchstick Men (2003)

"An uneven but engagingly quirky comedy-drama driven first by character, second by plot formulas, Cage is surprisingly convincing despite seeming at first like the wrong choice." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Chasing Papi (2003)

"A loud, frantic mess, a movie that wants to be a screwball farce but is simply farcical and screwy." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Agent Cody Banks (2003)

"Muniz and Duff have a huge following, but they're at the service of endless Meet Cutes and a violent finale that could easily be dubbed 'Explosion Parade.'" ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Bringing Down the House (2003)

"Jason Filardi's broad script is an uneven hodgepodge of culture clash, screwball romance, urban crime drama and sitcom." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Darkness Falls (2003)

"A joyless amalgam of horror movie cliches." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002)

"Never more than an extended TV episode, the originality of its heroine and messages merit a recommendation for families seeking slightly more thoughtful animated fare." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie (2002)

"The pandering, sappy script misses ample opportunities for satire and never brims with enough material or ideas to sustain the picture's 85-minute running time." ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Road Trip (2000)

"Although lively at times, the proceedings are far too perfunctory to generate a 'can-you-top-this' quality. The result is a film that knows some of the words, but not the music." ‐ Seattle Times

Me, Myself & Irene (2000)

"Me, Myself & Irene is one of the most daring, pungently funny and wholly original American comedies in ages -- and one of the silliest, too." ‐ Seattle Times
